All the little things

When the little things all add up, the result can be total mayhem or complete bliss. The little smiles you get through out the day, the kind word, the gentle touch, the funny email or text, the hug of a child, the love of a spouse, the call from a parent all have the powerContinue reading “All the little things”

Feeling hurts

They say that as a blogger you need to write consistently… they (whoever they are) are the same people that say that new mother’s should nap when the baby is napping… like the laundry and dishes will do themselves while you nap with your baby… My intentions are good but my main job is toContinue reading “Feeling hurts”

Sitting in the lap of the King

This week in the advent calendar is Joy… it’s a word I have long struggled to explain or even comprehend.

It’s been one three weeks since that night at the castle, three weeksContinue reading “Part 8: Really? You sure?”

Part Five: dancing moonlight

The day after I took the ring off my finger I remember walking into my bosses office feeling like I was going to throw up, how do I begin I kept thinking to myself. I sat in his chair and he smiled at me, knowing something was wrong and not pushing me to start untilContinue reading “Part Five: dancing moonlight”

Sometimes we find ourselves in a place of stillness and the silence can be deafening. I think the world is finding itself there now. We have so many things that we know need to be done, could be done but if you are like me the noise of the silence is distracting. As a rebelliousContinue reading “noisy silence”

There are words in our vocabulary that can inspire us, change us, break us or heal us, words that create and words that destroy, words of beginnings and words that speak of endings or, there are words that leave us hanging in the spaces in between.   Almost, it’s the ‘leave you hanging in between’Continue reading “almost”

It’s not in the fudge!

In the early fall, during one of the dark patches that seemed to have no end in sight,I got a random text from Tim with a picture of fudge, a picture that made it very clear that he had bought me some of my favorite fudge as a treat. The caption to the picture was “justContinue reading “It’s not in the fudge!”
